Phase II Open House

Tuesday, August 13, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.at the Wayzata City Hall Community Room

We’re midway through the 16-month lakefront planning initiative. Community values were identified, more than 150 residents and business owners participated in a series of design workshops, and hundreds of community-generated ideas are now being considered as potential options to address the community’s priorities for the lakefront. See how these ideas are beginning to be translated into preliminary design concepts and recommendations. This open forum will allow those who live, work and love Wayzata to see the work in progress and to offer input on these aspirations and ideas that will eventually become the framework for lakefront.
